Modern Day Slavery

Discussion by: Lynette on Mon, 2013-11-18 14:05 with 1 comments

I like to do a Modern Day Slavery Project with my English III students.  They research the topic and choose one aspect of modern-day slavery to explore in depth. In the past, they have then written an essay to share their research.  “Dear Mr. Wal-Mart” in Best Teen Writing 2013 would make a great mentor text to use in conjunction with this project.  Instead of having students write a typical essay, they will write a letter to a particular abusive company or organization that they have discovered through their research.
